4/5  rDev +37.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz beer poured into a pint glass. No stamped date.

Appearance - One finger barely offwhite head. Hazy light orange body.

Smell - Strong pumpkin spice. Cinnamon. Brown sugar. Eggnog... wrong holiday, but hey, the nose doesn't lie.

Taste - Pumpkin. Mild malts. Slight spiciness.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, inoffensive. Neither challenging nor boring.

Overall Drinkability - I think this beer is great at what it does. Not my style, but I can totally appreciate it. It's soft, mild, balanced, flavorful, and inoffensive. Great novelty beer.

Sampling now on 2/6/14 though I had this back in 2012. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.

Pours a amber in color with a 1-finger white foamy head that settles down to nothing really fast. Actually no lacing is seen either. The aroma is light with pumpkin and spices. The taste is a little 'watered' down but you can taste the pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg with maybe a slight taste of cloves for the finish. Overall, it was alright.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber colored with a long lasting off white head. Nose is pumpkin, vegetable leaves and vines; sweet cooked sugar, light cinnamon and cooking spices, noble, herbal hops. Taste follows nose with big pumpkin vegetable flavor; a sour tang underneath and some noble hop bitterness. High carbonation and medium thin mouthfeel. Tastes like fall to me.
